Take a journey in a premium air-conditioned private vehicle and make your way to India’s “monument of love”, the Taj Mahal and spend a day wrapped in luxury as you lunch at a 5-star property and shop at the bazaars. Grab the opportunity to visit the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort among other spots, shop in the local markets for authentic quality goods and end your day at Mehtab Bagh to witness an extraordinary view of the Taj in the evening. 

DAY 01

Delhi - Agra - Delhi

  • Get picked up from your hotel in Delhi-NCR at around 2 am or as per your convenience.

  • Relax in your premium air-conditioned private vehicle as you drive along the Yamuna Expressway from Delhi to Agra. There are several eateries and public convenience stops along the way.

  • Arrive in Agra by dawn to catch the first rays of the sun. Head straight to the magnificent Taj Mahal - one of the seven wonders of the world, and spend some time admiring the architectural masterpiece, its white marble façade taking on a golden glow at sunrise.

  • Spend a couple of hours walking around the Taj complex with your local guide, taking pictures, and learning about the UNESCO Heritage-listed as a ‘monument of love'.

  • Move on to the Agra Fort. You may choose to stop for refreshments on the way.

  • Start exploring countless attractions from the Mughal era at the fort. Here you will see how Indian and Islamic architecture and art styles have merged to give this red-stone building its distinct features. The Queen’s chambers, the King’s courts and other well-preserved areas of the fort are sure to take you on a trip to the royal era.

  • Proceed for a buffet lunch (optional extra add-on) at a 5-star hotel.

Once you finish enjoying a hearty meal, it is time to burn off those calories – you may choose between:

  • Shopping: Agra is well known for its marble enamel work, textiles, traditional crafts, rugs and carpets, brassware etc. Visit shops and bazaars that sell authentic goods of high quality.

  • Visit the Baby Taj: The Tomb of I'timād-ud-Daulah, often described as the “jewel box”, is a Mughal Mausoleum on the eastern bank of the Yamuna River. Akin to the Taj, it is set amidst a large cruciform garden crisscrossed by water courses and walkways. You can spend a couple of hours exploring the grounds.

  • Drive around Agra city during the afternoon will also give you the best opportunity to capture local life in your cameras.

  • Pay a visit to the Mehtab Bagh for a different view of the Taj, once again bathed in the golden glow of a setting sun. From here, you could see the reflection of the Taj Mahal in the waters of the Yamuna River. (Optional)

  • Proceed to drive back to Delhi via the same route. You may pass your time watching the countryside pass by.

  • Arrive in Delhi by late evening and get dropped off at your hotel.
